What is Imagine Clarity?

Imagine Clarity helps you develop authentic happiness and a meaningful life through mindfulness and meditation, with humanitarian, author, scientist and Buddhist monk Matthieu Ricard and other experienced authors.

The app currently contains:


  • "How to Meditate?": Matthieu explains the benefits of mind training and introduces a variety of meditation techniques. He explores the inner conditions for authentic well-being and how to overcome obstacles that can slow your progress on mind training. Matthieu provides specific guidance and encouragement on how to overcome obstacles and bring meditation into daily life, drawn from his own 45+ years of experience. Rich with visual examples and opportunities to meditate along with Matthieu.
  • "Mindfulness, Meditation and Genuine Happiness": Matthieu introduces us to the concept of mindfulness with a series of breathing techniques for training attention to achieve a clear state of mind. Genuine happiness is explored as a cluster of key qualities, such as inner peace, altruism and strength of mind.
  • "Meditations on Altruism": Matthieu demonstrates how to cultivate some of the most fundamental human qualities: altruism, loving-kindness, compassion and joy. He makes a robust argument that altruism, the genuine concern for the well-being of others, could be the saving grace of the 21st century.
  • "Deeper Insight": Matthieu provides guidance on how to cultivate vipashyana, deeper insight into the nature of the mind and the world. Deeper insight is acquired first by detailed analysis of consciousness, then through inner experience.


There are many approaches to mindfulness available today. The particularity of Imagine Clarity is that it comes from the heart of the tradition of Great Mindfulness and Compassion upheld by some of the greatest spiritual teachers of our age, translated into the most simple terms that anyone can follow, without any requirement of prior knowledge, experience or belief.

To get deeper into the processes of meditation, you can listen to and meditate on key points from Matthieu's book The Art of Meditation.

At Matthieu's request, Charles Hastings has created a course of ten-minute daily meditations presenting these methods in a way that is easily accessible to anybody, and consisting of four modules: Taming the Mind, Acquiring Stability, Mindfulness and Presence, and Caring Mindfulness. Charles believes that even if you have never meditated before or found it difficult in the past, this will enable you to meditate. Experienced meditators have also found these meditations useful.

This course is followed up by a second course by Charles Hastings with a hands-on approach to developing altruistic kindness and compassion, starting from the fundamental warm-heartedness that anyone can feel.

Imagine Clarity also offers an opportunity to share the experience of meditation with your young children, under the guidance of Dominique Butet co-author of the book Yupsi le Petit Dragon with Marie-Christine Champeaux-Cunin.

And finally, you can now learn with Dr Alan Wallace to develop attentional relaxation, stability, and clarity. These methods, which are the exact same ones as those used in the major scientific study on intensive mindfulness and meditation where he was the lead expert and meditation teacher, are suitable for beginners by their conciseness and close guidance, but also target advanced practitioners by the depth of their content. This Imagine Clarity mind-training offers an array of meditation practices designed to enhance one's attentional, emotional, and meta-cognitive abilities. Altogether four methods will be highlighted in this course: mindfulness of breathing, observing the mind, awareness of awareness, and the cultivation of benevolent mental states.
